The Indianapolis Colts will be without four-time Pro Bowl selection Robert Mathis for two to three weeks because of a left knee injury.
Defensive coordinator Greg Manusky says Jerry Hughes and Justin Hickman will take turns replacing Mathis at outside linebacker Sunday against the New York Jets.
Mathis was injured late in last weekend's 30-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers. He tried to use a knee brace, and when that didn't work, he did not return. The team said then he had a sprained knee.
Mathis played defensive end each of his first nine NFL seasons and leads the Colts with five sacks this season. He is ranked eighth in the NFL in sacks in his first season at linebacker.

According to Mike Chappell of the Indy Star, Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis will be out for the next 23 weeks with a sprained left knee.This is a big blow to the Colts’ defense. They paid Mathis big money to re-sign in Indy while they re-tool as an organization.
COLTS LOSE MATHIS WITH SPRAINED KNEE FOR 2-3 WEEKS -
The Indianapolis Colts lost a starting running back for a few weeks when Donald Brown had surgery after tearing cartilage in his knee. He won’t be the only player out of the lineup for some or all of those games. Outside linebacker Robert Mathis is going to be out for two or three weeks with a sprained knee that he suffered in...
The National Football Post's Matt Bowen broke down Andrew Luck's game winning touchdown to Reggie Wayne using the NFL's All-22 footage. Bowen explained the offensive and defensive formations, routes, and coverage on the play and showed why the play was successful:
- Where is the inside help from the Mike and FS? Look at Luck in the pocket. No hesitation for the Colts’...
Last week, everyone who chose to play Luck and Wayne were rewarded; my brother sat both of them in his league, and lost by about 20 points. Poor guy. Anyway, so you don't make the same mistakes with Colts players this week, here's a nice fantasy article, curtesy of David Sabino.
Interestingly, he suggests teams pick up Vick Ballard, given New York's clearly porous defensive...
Colts rookie running back Vick Ballard will make his first NFL start Sunday against the New York Jets after Donald Brown had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his knee.
Interim coach Bruce Arians says Brown had surgery Tuesday and shouldn't miss more than two to three weeks.
Arians did not say which knee Brown injured in the victory over Green Bay, which apparently occurred...
Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown underwent a knee scope and will miss two to three weeks. The injury occurred late in the second half against the Packers.
Rookie tailback Vick Ballard will get the start against the Jets on Sunday. Ballard is a nice sleeper pick in all formats as the Jets have been terrible against the run this season.
Andrew Luck had his best game yet in leading the Colts back from a 21-3 halftime deficit over the Green Bay Packers. It ties the largest comeback win of the season, and the largest by a rookie since Matthew Stafford’s 21-point comeback over Cleveland in 2009.
For the third straight game Luck led the offense on a go-ahead scoring drive with less than a minute to go, and Green...
COLTS RB DONALD BROWN TO MISS A FEW WEEKS DUE TO KNEE SURGERY -
The Colts will be adding a rookie running back next to their rookie quarterback in the starting lineup for the next few weeks. Interim head coach Bruce Arians announced Wednesday that running back Donald Brown underwent knee surgery this week and that he will miss the next two or three weeks as he recovers. According...
Yeah, I don't really have an intro for this one but let this video be a lesson to all you nose-pickers out there.
If you do decided to pick, make sure that someone isn't filming you digging for nose gold:
After a huge win agains the Packers this past Sunday, the Colts will take on the circus in New York on Sunday.
The Jets have had their problems in 2012, being extremely disappointing after a blowout win against Buffalo in Week 1.
A lot of the problems have stemmed from the Jets most visible problem: quarterback. Mark Sanchez continues to be a terrible excuse for an NFL quarterbak...
Even with their wins over Minnesota and Green Bay, the Colts are being picked as a 3.5-point underdog; CBS has them losing by 7 in their weekly preview. Their score (17-10) would be an interesting outcome, especially because:- it would be 7 points less than the Colts's lowest score this year
- since week 1 against Buffalo, the Jets have scored 10, 23, 0, and 17 points and are...
A lengthy article, but a good read to really put this game in perspective. I especially like the Indy's regular season record against them: 40-26. I mean, that won't factor into this week's game, but at least it's not 0-66; then, I might get a little paranoid.Oh! And my Colts/Jets history! Living in Canada, I'm not able to go to nearly as many Colts games as...
Four-time Pro Bowler Robert Mathis and starting running back Donald Brown did not make the trip when the Indianapolis Colts traveled to New York on Saturday for their game against the Jets.
Neither absence was a surprise. The Colts (2-2) had said both would miss two to three weeks with knee injuries.
Linebacker Jerry Hughes is expected to replace Mathis in the starting lineup,...
Coming off of an emotional victory against the Packers on the back of Chuck Pagano, this could have the makings of a let down game. That is of course if the Jets had anything resembling an offensive attack and had the ability to put up points in any traditional manner.
Betting against the Jets can be tricky, because they will come along with a Joe McKnight return to the house...
